Customize NewForm list view

  Asked By: Harley    Date: Jun 16    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1308

I would like to change the newform list so that only certain people
can see certain fields. For example people in the admin group can see
the assign to field in an issue list, but people in the member group
can only see title and summary.

I was thinking that I could somehow change schema.xml for the issues
list but not sure if this is the easiest/best way to go.

Has anyone else needed to do something like this? What did you do to
get what you wanted?

I would suggest not getting too fancy with data entry and SharePoint. I just got off the tail end of having to choose between custom built wrappers over top of doing essentially what you get for free from SharePoint because the data entry is simple. SharePoint is not about data entry, it’s a collaboration platform and I wouldn’t try to morph it into something it isn’t. There was another blog I read recently (can’t remember where) but there was a reason why the NewForm and EditForm (and the ListFormWebPart that is used on these pages) isn’t setup for modification (i.e. don’t put any custom web parts on it) and why there’s no Modify Shared Page menu. Keep it simple or look at alternative technologies (like InfoPath) to do the right job.
